Funko Games will debut four new games at Gen-Con Indy 2021, held at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN until Sept. 19.  

New to the Funko Games roster are “The Warriors:” Come Out to Play, based on the 1979 film, “The Goonies:” Under the Goondocks A Never Say Die Expansion and “The Rocketeer:” Fate of the Future, all available for purchase Gen Con. In addition, Funko Games treks from the 1990s into today with plans to launch a legacy game based on Jurassic World in 2022. 

In “The Warriors” game, players navigate New York’s subway system to their home turf of Coney Island to prove their innocence. The game is available for pre-order and will roll out in early 2022. 

“‘The Warriors’ is one of those films with a devoted fan base 40 years later, who quote every line and nerd out on the peculiar gangs – Baseball Furies, the Punks and High Hats,” says Deirdre Cross, vice president, Funko Games. “We have reimagined all the familiar elements from the movie, including the evocative radio DJ, memorable characters and iconic gangs. Prospero Hall’s inventive gameplay and original artwork bring the film’s gritty aesthetic to life, creating an experience that is worthy of the most ardent Warriors’ fan.” 

“The Rocketeer:” Fate of the Future is on sale for the first time exclusively in the Funko Games booth before hitting store shelves next month. A Prospero Hall creation, opponents face off in a two-player game of cat-and-mouse as they work to keep the rocket plans hidden from each other.  

Based on the “The Goonies:” Never Say Die board game released this summer, Funko Games returns to Astoria, OR with a new expansion which continues the story of the original game with three new adventures.
